Example: Say the Caldeon deal went down for Chandler & Diaw, you'd be allowed to keep Chandler and amnesty Diaw.
yes, that's what i meant.
You do a normal deal. Then amnesty the guy (or 1 of several guys, or whatever).
Like in Turk's case, Turkoglu + Redick + pick + 3 mil cash for Barbosa.
Or even for nothing (you still have a ton of cap space with a 50-50 BRI split).
Then you amnesty Turk.

You generally can't trade any exceptions in the NBA. But use them on a traded player?

It would be a nice option to have. A way for Raptors to get an asset. Instead of just wasting the amnesty when you don't really need it.
